Coffee Morning Castletroy Park Hotel Limerick

Michael and Kay Fagan as well as Nicola and Greg Foley organised a Coffee Morning  on Tues 6th March in Castletroy Park Hotel Limerick in the Conservatory
The hotel is situated off the M7 Dublin motorway, adjacent to the University of Limerick and minutes from Limerick centre
At the same time another Coffee morning was run at Adare Woollens in the picturesque village of Adare, Co Limerick, Adare Woollens is situated in the Heritage Centre surrounded by ancient medieval buildings. Visitors are charmed by the ambience of the historic, unspoilt village.

Coffee Morning and Raffle Pastoral Centre, Dunshaughlin

St Valentine’s Day clashed with Ash Wednesday this year on Wed 14th Feb may have impeded peoples ability to consume too many cakes. But helped to moderate their dietary intake just a little. Overall it ran off smoothly. Just to mention that the Raffle Sponsors were Cillin Cakes, Supervalu, Champagne Beauty, Classic Cuts etc….And everything that went into the box goes to SOFT and is much appreciated.

Other coffee mornings organised were

 Antoinette and Adrian Conroy on  Fri 9 Feb

 Geraldine and Terry Matthews on Sun 4 Mar

Thanks to Terry, Antoinette and everyone that helped to organise these events.

SOFT Ireland the Support Organisation For Trisomy 13/18 in Ireland is a voluntary group dedicated to providing support, assistance and information for families of children born with Pataus’ Syndrome (Trisomy 13) and Edward’s Syndrome (Trisomy 18). Support is provided during prenatal diagnosis, during the childs’s life and after the child’s passing.  It was formed in 1991. Soft Ireland is run by parents affected by Trisomy 13/18 and related disorders.

SOFT Ireland is funded entirely by members fundraising and public donation and now, more than ever, we need your support to help us continue our work.

There are many ways you can help us raise vital funds – coffee morning, pub quiz, golf classic, bag packing in your local shops, race night, marathon sponsorship, church gate collection…..

Should you be interested in organising an event please feel free to contact any of our fundraising sub-committee who have first-hand experience of organising such events and will be delighted to help with advice and suggestions. We can provide you with t-shirts, sponsorship cards, pens and literature on SOFT Ireland.
